Help Haiti By Honoring Its History Writes House in NY Daily News

Journalism associate professor Roger House writes for the NY Daily News about the history of Haiti. House writes that at one point Haiti stood as a beacon of freedom for all. But the financial repercussions that it faced from rebelling against France, Spain, Britain, and the U.S still affect the country today.

“Haiti became an international platform for the overthrow of African slavery across the Americas. Thousands of Black Americans fled slavery and subjugation between the 1820s and 1850s to resettle in Haiti. Frederick Douglass was named the American ambassador after the U.S. recognized the country in 1862.”
